I shoot a .40 rifled flintlock at clay birds at 50 yards with no problem. There is no doubt a good flintlock rifle could hit a man at 200 - 300 yards, once you have calculated the bullet's drop for that range.
I shoot a .50cal Flint, I love it... I seem to have good accuracy at 100 yds, after that, I am pretty much off of the paper. I can shoot a hanging clay pidgeon at 75yds, but I am still getting the feel, give me a few more years :)
